    You can't find any app which can lock other apps as there is no api for an app to access memory used by others

    There are other app lockers in Store also.Quite a few are free and seem to have good reviews.

    What you're looking for does not exist. Windows Phone, like iOS, does not allow apps to interfere with each other. (whether by drawing over them - like chat heads, or preventing access.)

    The usual behavior is create a live tile that would act as a shortcut to the app in question, except it puts a passcode in the way.

    It technically works, but one can easily bypass it by swiping to the All Apps list.

    However, if you use a PIN code to prevent entry from the phone, and use the App Corner/Children's corner to allow someone else to use the phone, you won't have a problem. Better than an App Locker and more secure by a long shot.
